A Ball-Bar Based Error Measurement Method for a RRTTT-Type Five-Axis Machine Tool

Abstract:

Article Preview

Measurement method using telescoping ball-bar that can directly determine the volumetric errors of three main types of five-axis machine tools was developed. Adopting Single Socket method, and the method following the defined two-step measurements sequence and incorporating with derived error models, can quickly determine the five degrees-of-freedom (DOF) volumetric errors of five-axis machine tools. Comparing to most of the current used measurement methods, the proposed method provides the advantages of low cost, high efficiency, easy setup, and high accuracy.
